    Nice job, Milawyn, as usual.

    Tuarwen: I must agree with Silaen there - more camerashakes and more cowbell! But good video anyway.

    Re: The Laurelin Art Thread

    Art comes in many forms and it is wonderful to see it.
    Keep up the good work!

    And now for my little contribution. A poem, feedback welcomed *grin*

    Woad Rage

    I was asked to find some special woad whilst out Esteldin way,
    "There's not much left, it got trampled" I heard the lady say
    "We need it to support the coming war to dye the ranger's sashes"
    "It makes identifying the dead much easier when sifting through the ashes"

    How could I have refused her? when she explained their plight
    I wanted to help the Rangers in their impending fight
    So off I went a'venturing to help this lady bold
    I went in the direction just as I was told.

    "It grows around the trees and rocks out where the big beasts roam"
    (apparently their droppings help improve the loam)
    So I raced towards the nearest trees sprinting across the ground
    I looked in all the crevasses but not a single plant was found

    I turned and saw the problem I filled with anger and with fear
    No wonder I couldn't find one half of Middle Earth was here
    She's asked each and every stranger as they came through the gate
    and they brought along their best friend, his brother and his mate.

    The field was filled with people as far as the eye could see
    Hobbits from Bywater, Dwarves... and Men from Bree
    My temper began to rise and I couldn't help my self
    when out from behind a pine tree stepped a smiling Elf

    I hit him with my backpack then pounded with my fist
    I went at him with fury he had no chance to resist
    I flew into a frenzy and I admit I hit him well
    and like a sack of taters, down that poor Elf fell

    So that is why I'm sitting here, with a guard on either side
    and telling you my story (with just a hint of pride)
    It turns out the lady is a fraud and the woad will never see a sash
    She's made a deal in Ered Luin and is raking in the cash

    A big hello and thanks to all those posters on this thread. *And a big wave to all those from the thread's previous incarnation.*

    It would be great to try and get this one a sticky!

    Well here is some of my input. They are, for now, focussed around our Kin, but in time I hope to do more generic artwork of places and events.

    Patrols along the routes between Imladris and Mithlond are a key part of what we do. Oftentimes this is done in secret, but a more open show of our presence is sometimes required.

    Wow these are great and so lotr-ish! Well done
    Sam: “It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folks in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going because they were holding on to something.”
    Frodo:“What are we holding on to, Sam?”
    Sam: “That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.”

    — J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings)

    Truer words were never spoken.

    Those sentiments, I believe, are part of the reason why so many of us hold the works of Tolkien dear in our hearts. Works of fantasy are a reflection of the world we live in. Tolkien seen much of the horror of war and knew what he was talking about. We hold many virtues within each of us but it is the ones we choose to act on that define us.

    The wonder of fiction and art, in all forms, is that it allows us to explore and express ourselves. This community shares a common love for Tolkien and works of fantasy in general and it is always a delight to view any creative work. Some may feel they lack the skills or confidence to express themselves and post. That their stories, poems or artwork are inferior. But this would be a sad loss to the community as a whole should they not post, for each creative work is a seed that allows us all to grow together.

    Skills and technique can be learned, all it takes is practice. What matters is the spark of imagination! That idea, that channelled expression of emotion through art is what counts!

    So I ask any who have struggled, to look deep within themselves and discover what pulled them through their own times of peril, of darkness. And show us something fair that we may carry with us on our own journey and perhaps along the way, we can all make the world a little greater?


    PS
    Oh and a big thank you to all of you who have commented on my own work! Some of whom I know are really creative! I can only hope you found something of interest in them.

    My goodness Aearandir, there you go being inspirational with your words as well as your art! I totally agree with you, of course. Now I am encouraged to pick up pencil and get drawing again.....though posting may take a little more courage yet.

    And please post more pictures Amory - I really love your style.

    Usually i post my paintings on Laurelin Archives, but as this is a new thread, i thought i could share a few paints i've made this year.

    A bridge in Ered Luin


    The swamps next to Needlehole, in the Shire


    The fairies exist, if you stay quiet, in the deep of the forest, you can sometimes see them, with a bit of luck


    The other swamp of the Shire, next to Frogmorton

    There is so much talent in this thread, I'm in awe!

    I would love to be able to write, draw, paint and use graphic programs to such great effect.

    Oh Taogan, those pictures are *lovely*....so etherial, so peaceful and 'otherworldly'! I particulary love the one of the bridge in Ered Luin.

    There really is a lot of talent on this thread and, dare I say, in the community at large. I look forward to being inspired by more

    Please do!!! The more works that are posted in differing styles and levels of ability can only encourage others to eventually post their own expression.

    Im loving Amory's style too. Reminds me a lot of the classic 70's LOTR art. Really nice use of colours! Taogan's work also has that natural watercolour look that fits in so well with Middle-Earth. The Frogmorton image is one I particularly like.

    Looking forward to seeing more!
